The telling room: A Tale of Love, Betrayal, Revenge, and the World's Greatest Piece of Cheese by Michael Paterniti

This meeting will take place in a private home. If you're interested in attending, please email sina.keplers@gmail.com.

While working in a deli owned by a larger-than-life foodie, a young Michael Paterniti encounters what was then considered the finest cheese in the world - Paramo de Guzman. Too poor at the time to buy a taste, Paterniti instead vows to one day meet this fascinating, magical cheese again. Years later, Paterniti, with family in tow, makes good on his vow by traveling to the rustic Spanish village where the cheese is produced.

Oakland - Poetry Flash with Julia B. Levine and Alison Luterman
Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Sunday, August 3 at 3pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland hosts another installment of the always excellent Poetry Flash with Julia B. Levine and Alison Luterman on Sunday, August 3rd at 3pm.

Julia B. Levine’s new book of poems is Small Disasters Seen in Sunlight. Library Journal says of it, "A polished poet of extraordinary skill … Levine is caught between wholehearted love of the world's beauty and sorrow at its unavoidable misery and suffering." She is the author of three previous books of poems, including Ask, winner of the Tampa Review Prize for Poetry and Practicing for Heaven, winner of the Anhinga Prize for Poetry. Among her other honors are a Discovery/The Nation award and the Pablo Neruda Prize for Poetry from Nimrod.

Alison Luterman's new book of poems is Desire Zoo. Bruce Weigl says of her work, "Out of the corner of her eye, Alison Luterman is a keen watcher of the tangled business of our lives, and in her heart, she is a storyteller whose power resides, as in all good storytellers' hearts, in her faith in the listener." Her previous collections are The Largest Possible Life, winner of the 2000 Cleveland State University Poetry Center Prize, and See How We Almost Fly. Also a playwright, Alison Luterman performs improvisational spoken word and dance with the Oakland-based performance ensemble Wing It!

Poetry Flash readings are wheelchair accessible; ASL interpreters may be requested one week in advance from editor@poetryflash.org. Visit Poetryflash.org for more events and reviews!

Conversación en la Catedral by Mario Vargas Llosa

Zavalita y el zambo Ambrosio conversan en La Catedral. Estamos en Peru, durante el ochenio dictatorial del general Manuel A. Odria. Unas cuantas cervezas y un rio de palabras en libertad para responder a la palabra amordazada por la dictadura.Los personajes, las historias que estos cuentan, los fragmentos que van encajando, conforman la descripcion minuciosa de un envilecimiento colectivo, el repaso de todos los caminos que hacen desembocar a un pueblo entero en la frustracion.
